I wasn't going to bring this to your attention. But there will be no way I can hide it. Sooner or later you will begin questioning why we are doing so many major projects, and why my husband is showing up more and more in my posts.
Friday afternoon, my husband was laid off. A total of 23 people in a work force that doesn't reach 200, were. And there is more coming.
Because of this, our life here on the homestead will abruptly change. You will see more repurpose and frugality in my posts. We will struggle more. And try desperately to hold onto our little patch of land.
We still plan on Firefly, the real donkey, to be here. (no worries Marina, that has already been worked out) I will need to look outside of the home for extra work. You can't lay off a motorcycle mechanic in the dead of winter and expect him to find work before spring. He has already talked to other shops.
This will be a very rough time in our lives.
On a brighter note, our 3 year old turns 4 today! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY!
